Around the World in Eighty DaysBook - 2004
One ill-fated evening at the Reform Club, Phileas Fogg rashly bets his companions that he can travel around the entire globe in just eighty days-and he is determined not to lose. Accompanied by his hot-blooded French manservant Passepartout, Fogg travels by train, steamship, sailboat, sledge, and even elephant to win the extraordinary wager, overcoming storms, kidnappings, natural disasters, Sioux attacks, and the hot pursuit of dogged Inspector Fix of Scotland Yard-who believes that Fogg has robbed the Bank of England. Around the World in Eighty Days gripped audiences on its publication and remains hugely popular, combining exploration, adventure, and a thrilling race against time.
